Abstract:

A computer code for a turbulent, compressible boundary-layer method, capable of carrying out computations in a region of separated flow, is developed and tested. The procedure after separation is to specify either friction velocity or boundary-layer thickness as an independent variable and obtain external velocity as a dependent variable. This requires a trial and error alternation of the specified variable in order to match the desired experimental or computed external velocity. Satisfactorily results were obtained by this method in the analysis of certain specialized cases of separated flow.
